Went for a late breakfast on a Friday morning. By 10:45, it was not busy. I was seated promptly and asked for coffee. Coffee arrived, but I had to ask for cream. They use packaged creamer, which is fine, but they had run completely out. The waitress scrounged the other tables and found two and said my waiter would be... More

After fishing we were hungry and looking for something simple, this is a good spot. Surprisingly excellent burger and nice fries (could have been a little warmer). Bacon cheese burger with lettuce and tomato, hard to beat. This isn't Smash Burger or Farm Burger or some other "big name," but good. Beer is cold and has a small town college... More

I stopped in on a Saturday morning at 8 AM while passing through the area. This is a cosy cafe with tables and booths. The servers were friendly and service was fast. My breakfast plate arrived from the kitchen in less than 5 minutes. The over easy eggs were cooked perfectly and I also enjoyed the biscuits. I would definitely... More

We waited on a Sunday just around lunch about 30 minutes. That was not the issue as we anticipated waiting. The problem is that we sat for 15 minutes before the waitress came by the table. Apologized for being late to arrive. Asked for our drink orders and said she'd be back with menus. 10 minutes later, no waitress, we... More

Food is bland, needs some spice. The price not bad, but can get better food elsewhere for the same prices!!!! Try the new restaurant just down the street :)

We got the fried pickels for an Appetizer and they where... More

My wife & I were in NC on vacation last week and went to Sylva for lunch. We stumbled across Hooper's and were glad that we did. The food was great and so were the prices. They have daily lunch specials for $5.99, which also include a drink. We decided to return to Sylva later in the week and returned... More

We had a wonderful family breakfast at Hooper's the Fourth of July; Everything was fresh and tasty. The service was a bit slow and scattered that day but we've been there before and WILL BE BACK!!!

I've been on a quest for the best Reuben in America, and the one at Hoopers in Sylva is close to the top. Corned beef that melts in your mouth. All of the breakfast items are good, too. The rest of the menu is fairly normal but they do offer daily specials.
